wednesday night in the first of three presidential campaigns. drilling obama in the polls of several battleground states, romney sought to rejuvenate his campaign with an attack on what he called president obama's policies of trickle-down government. >> i am concerned the path we're on has been unsuccessful. the president has a view to one similar when he ran four years ago, that a bigger government spending more, taxing more, regulating more -- a trickle- down government -- would work. that is not the right answer for america. >> president obama was more subdued in his comments, failing to make one mention of romney's infamous 47%, and his background of bain capital. addressing romney's tax plan, obama said romney's effort to cut taxes for the wealthy would be to the gutting of essential government programs. box for 18 months he has been running on this tax plan. five weeks before the election, now he is saying his big, bold idea is, "never mind." the fact is, if you are lowering the rates the way you described, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and
of the first presidential debate between governor romney of massachusetts and president obama. you see both men being greeted by their wives on stage. even this portion of the debate is negotiated ahead of time by the campaigns in terms of which members of their family will be joining them on stage. this is, these these are negotiated down to this level of detail. in terms of how the overall debate unfolded, i personally do not know who won this debate. i do feel that we saw this debate format die a very painful death on camera tonight. the contrast between the candidates was stylistic as much as substantive. president obama i think calm and basically explanatory tonight. governor romney, more hyper, and i don't mean that in a negative way, just sort of more amped, more assertive. and that manifests in a way that the debate format was just dismantled. the format and i think the moderator, with all due respect to mr. lehrer dismantled. this is one of those debates, you could predict the score more by time of possession in terms of who was speaking more. then you could by any other individual pla
of the first presidential debate of the 2012 election. just about half an hour ago, president obama and republican challenger mitt romney wrapped up a 90-minute debate that covered not at all a wide range of topics. limited to domestic politics. we knew tonight but basically these guys talked about sunday morning beltway show favorites like "similarson bowls" and medicare and social security but left out a lot of other big domestic issues that have been major political issues including immigration, women's rights, specifically with issue of abortion rights, union rights and including mr. romney's 47% remarks which are absolutely dominated the campaign for the last week or more. mr. romney's record as has mass governor was also not discussed except on mr. romney's own terms when he brought it up himself. there was honestly, a lot left on the cutting room floor by this format and by the moderator who moderated with more than a light touch. mr. romney by most estimates needed to come out with a strong night tonight giving how he was fairing into the polls heading into the night and he
clearly came in with what i would call a presidential strategy in the debate. and they may, at team obama, look at that tonight and say we've got to change that. and that strategy was the president was not going to step down from the presidential podium into that courtroom and become a prosecutor. mitt romney was happy to take on the role of the smiling prosecutor, which i think we can all agree was exactly what he should have done. tactically what we saw mitt romney do makes sense from where we're sitting certainly, and when you are sitting where we're sitting, watching what the president was doing in the debate, being careful, protecting his lead, you might say, you can look at that and say that's not going to work in the next two debates. and i think team obama is probably looking at that right now and saying okay, we have to step into this debate. we can't stand back and i would differ with you, rachel about the moderator point in this debate. i actually like this kind of debate because the moderator is not a factor. he leaves it up to the debaters to make it a debate. mitt romney's t
presidential debate, a bombshell is about to be dropped on the white house because tonight you'll hear from barack obama like you've never heard from him before. >> oh, yes, that was the introduction last night before fox aired tape of a 2007 speech by then-candidate obama to a group of black ministers in which he criticized the response to hurricane katrina and provided certain analysts with an excuse for a little racial fear mongering. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. >> do you notice a change in the way he delivers this speech? >> this accent is absurd. this is not the way obama talks. in is not a dog whistle. this is a dog siren. >> it's incendiary -- >> yes, it's just about as incendiary as two white dudes debates how black is too black in a black man's speech. indeed, fox ran with it all the way into the morning on "fox and friends". >> we watched president obama for 3 hchl years. i don't think he's governed in a race this way at all. i think that was going to be an
looks like. meanwhile, we are awaiting, we're awaiting remarks from president obama. both presidential nominees are campaigning in the battleground state of virginia today. we are closely monitoring these events. we'll bring you the very latest developments. back to all of that in just a moment. but first, brand new stories and breaking news. jenna: new developments on a deadly meningitis outbreak putting nearly half of all states on alert with fresh concerns that more people may be at risk. we're going to have the latest on this health scare and also new questions being raised by certain medication. you're going to want to hear that. >>> also a major airline scrambling to fix a problem that could be very dangerous at 35,000 feet. american airlines canceling dozens of flights ahead of the holiday weekend. wait until you hear why. >>> also this is not a knockout for the justice system. what prompted this guy to attack his own lawyer. that's all, "happening now." jenna: a lot of great stories but we're back to politics. certainly a big week for the presidential campaign. some suggesting
here from 2007, from the speech by then senator and presidential candidate barack obama. the daily collar dug up a full video of the speech, posting it online, calling it an exclusive, calling it obama's other race speech. joe johns, let me go to you there in washington. joe, to be crystal clear, there is absolutely nothing new about this speech, it is five years old. so my question to you, is -- why is this popping up now? why is this being trumpeted by so many conservative media outlets, of course, the timing on the eve of the first presidential debate? >> well, brooke, they say the entire tape of the entire speech has not been widely circulated. so that's why they put the exclusive label on it. timing is everything. it is a political year. could be a way to fire up conservatives at crunch time, also, as simple as maybe the daily caller somehow discovered this tape, but they had something exclusive, ran with it. either way, it is safe to say it is old news. the reason it gets attention from conservatives is there is a school of thought out there that says the president has deeply
conversations] you're live in denver for the first presidential debate of 2012. between president obama and mitt romney. held at the university of denver. there are no opening statements, we're ready to here moderator introduce the candidates and ask the first question. >> moderator: i remember good evening. [laughter] [inaudible] [inaudible conversations] >> okay. they lag. it is two minutes. they are just testing us. they are just testing us. [inaudible conversations] >> moderator:..it. [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> moderator: 30 seconds, folks. let's have a terrific evening for all of you. good evening from the madness arena at the university of colorado. im jim lehrer of the pbs "newshour." i welcome you to the 2012 debates between barack obama, the democratic nominee and former massachusetts governor, mitt romney, the republican nominee. this debate in the next three, two presidential, one vice presidential are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues that will follow a format designed by the commission.
for this debate tonight; jobs, the economy, health care. but first, a new distraction for the obama campaign during a critical week. it comes in the form of a video released by "the daily caller" of then-presidential candidate barack obama back in 2007. in it he speaks to a group mostly made up of black pastors. his speech got some coverage at the time he delivered it, but his prepared remarks did not include some of the off-the-cuff, off-prompter moments, if you will, alluding to alleged racism to hurricane katrina and spending decisions made by our elected leaders. our chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live in washington with more. mike? >> reporter: hi, megyn. the tone has attracted some attention with then-candidate obama sounding different as he spoke to a large group of african-american religious leaders in virginia. one major topic was mr. obama trying to contrast the response to hurricane katrina and other high-profile disasters. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget
until president obama and mitt romney meet here for first presidential debate. it will actually only be the fourth time the two men have met face to face. this debate could be a game changer. >>> standing up to a bully, a tv anchor takes on a viewer who called her fat. see what she's saying this morning. >>> another drama filled day for american airlines. why the embattled carrier was forced to make not one, but two emergency landings. >>> from the queen of talk to a country princess, we'll tell you which hollywood ladies bring in the big bucks. "newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning to you. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for being with us this morning. all is quiet. the first presidential debate is set to take place in just about 11 hours. you know, looks almost serene here, but you can still -- you can see all the work that went into setting the stage for tonight's debate. when it comes to the things we remember most about these debates, it is all about the tiny little details. little things like remember ron paul's oversized suits or michele bachmann's military style dress
if it is not a good report. this will further the obama slipping story line. if it was a surprisingly or better than expected report, maybe the debate last night is a thing of the past for president obama. remember, there is a vice presidential debate in a week from today, but it's a little while until the next presidential debate. if the story line is if mitt romney won clearly, bad jobs report, we could go from now until the next presidential debate with with that narrative, which is good for mitt romney and bad for barack obama. >> the last jobs report was in the mix, so this one is more important. thank you so much, chris. that does it for us for this edition of "andrea mitchell reports." tamron has a look at what's next on "news nation." hi, tamron. >> a victory for mitt romney, but did he win because he's so vague last night. ezra kline joins us. what might be the million dollar question. why didn't president obama bring up romney's 47% remarks? bain capital or even more details on romney's taxes. well, patrick gaspar from the dnc will join me live. we'll find out what he knows. our "news nati
didn't care for mitt romney, and last night president obama gave him, you know, some much needed life support. >> so -- >> you know what, it's not over. >> of course. no, no, it's not over at all. we have two more debates, and obviously a vice presidential debate as well. anna, romney actually talked a lot about jobs. he kept going back to had it. he was very, very focused here, and he accused the president of killing jobs. it didn't even matter what the subject was. he kept bringing it back to jobs. was there anything that you felt that the president needed to focus on, that he could have made more inroads? >> he needed to focus, period, suzanne. he just was unfocused. he wasn't quite there. you know, he -- why didn't he bring up all the -- why didn't he correct the things he felt he needed correcting? because he was slow-footed. why didn't he focus on one or two or three of his big achievements? because he was slow-footed. he just wasn't at the top of his game. i think mitt romney took advantage of that and, you know, we saw him even dominate the debate format and really just be hea
country. arena. i welcome you to the first presidential debate between president barack obama and the republican nominee mitt romney. this debate and the next three are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. about domestic issues and will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six 15-minute segments with two-minute answers the segment. thousands of people offered suggestions on questions via the internet and other means. i made the final selections. they were not submitted for approval to the commission or the candidates. the economy -- one each on health care, the role oftre will be an emphasis throughout on differences, specifics, and choices. closing statements. the audience has promised to remain silent. no cheers, applause, or other candidates have to say. [applause] welcome to you both. let's start with the economy. segment one. let's begin with jobs. what are the major differences between the two of you about how you would go about creating new jobs? you have two minutes each to start. the coin toss has determined that mr. president goes
, enormous number of it will deciders. undecided and swingable independents. if he comes out presidential and goes on the offense with obama there is potential for a lot of upside for him. >> bret: we all have pollitis watching polls. but there is a new one today. the "wall street journal"/nbc poll puts the race at 4% for president obama. vi% for governor romney. if you look at the real clear politics average of polls, this is roughly about that from september 25 to octobe october 2. if you go to the "wall street journal" poll about the economy, approval, how is president obama doing handling the economy? vi% approve. 51% disapprove. brit, while right track/wrong track is narrowing there is still real negative numbers in the polls for president obama. >> well, for romney to have a chance, there better be. because that is the issue that is central. he had been gaining ground on the issue in a way a lot of people thought wasn't possible. if he has begun to retreat, romney needs that to happen. he needs to emerge from the whole campaign, the debates part of them as the person with the abilit
that these voters tend to favor the republican presidential candidate, and in this election the survey said they favored romney 58% to obama 34. they tend to lean right, these military voters, but they don't all vote. and you say in this year is the worst it has been in terms of the voting assistance being provided which is really too bad. eric, thank you. housenk you. republican now putting a hold on $450 million of money meant for the people of egypt, this after our embassy came in -- under attack in cairo. what, if anything, egypt can do to repair its standing with the united states and whether we're really likely to withhold that aid. >>> last week we introduced you to in the young woman, she was voted to her homecoming court and then found out it was a prank. in three minutes, what happened when she showed up at school this past friday night. but phillips' caplets don't. they have magnesium. for effective relief of occasional constipation. thanks.

screen with barack obama. obama was tentative and on the defense and struggling to put words together and mitt romney came out and acted very presidential and that came through. stuart: one word? >> and saying he could work with democrats and worked with democrats in the legislature in massachusetts proved he can sit down and work with people of the opposing party and get things done. something barack obama is incapable of doing because he is a fierce ideologue. stuart: not the nasty rich guy -- [talking over each other] >> going to sit down and make things work. competence is what people are craving right now. stuart: i will say something i try not to do very often. i was wrong. i thought no matter what happened the liberal media would paint the debate as an obama victory or at worst day tie. the performance was so stunning on the part of mitt romney even the most liberal newspapers and columnists had to acknowledge it. had line from the washington post rejuvenated romney hammer's obama and his economic record. the l.a. times, lackluster obama, revived romney. dennis: use. where was
presidential which he does anyway, but also really go after president obama. take apart his record point by point. present very specifics as to how his approach to the economy and jobs would be different but be very specific because that is what really generates confidence in voters. tracy: but that's the thing. we haven't gotten specifics out of mitt romney yet, have we? >> or from barack obama. >> no, we have not. if you want barack obama's specifics look what happened last four years. those are his specifics. with romney is in a bit of a bind though because the things he wants to do, when you get down to real brass tacks of them are not going to be popular, right? more tax cuts for super-rich. messing around with medicare. give us more specifics on that. see how that plays in florida. tracy: at the same time, enough is enough with handing out welfare checks, handing out food stamps. we're on our way to socialism. is that what american people want to hear. >> what ellis said we have four years of evidence what barack obama has done and what he would do next four years. the reason obama
presidential debate of this campaign is tomorrow in denver. how mitt romney and president barack obama are preparing as they count down the hours to tomorrow night. 90 minutes of drama should we say? >> can you imagine being a fly on the wall, listening to the prep and what they're going through, he says this, you say this, stand like that, talk like this. the prep must be fascinating behind the scenes. >> i would love to hear the commentary as they're looking at their opponents in previous debates, just the things they would say about them. >> political theater in full effect tomorrow night. >>> also, folks, a health concern near and dear to our insomniac viewers, this is for sure, we'll bring you new and pretty eye-opening research into teens who are sleep deprived. something we can relate to, especially coming off a little mini weekend vacation. >> basically anything positive out of sleep deprivation. >> the news is never good for our life expectancy on the shift. >>> this is actually kind of good, though. "extreme eats," ordinary foods with an extreme edge. i will introduce you to
in the last few weeks. >> you've talked about that. obama is actually in the better position to be winning. >> should be winning, counter intuitive when unemployment is stuck over 8%. >> what do you mean? >> we have so few presidential elections in the modern era, once every four years, there's not a lot of data. what you find is like look at 1980 with jimmy carter losing, incumbent president, 1992, george bush losing, after one term. you had basically the economy was going in the wrong -- it was not growing. it has been growing under obama. it's not explosive growth like ronald reagan had in 1984, able to win 49 states, but it's been slowly growing. you have that and you have another thing that political scientists kind of found there seems to be an advantage the less time your party has been in the white house, the more -- so bush sr. in '92 that's 12 years of republican rule. people are itching for change at that point. four years coming in off what obama inherited is a different situation. >> you know, one thing i would say is that the presidential level and at the gubernatorial level
away from thes first presidential debate in denver where mitt romney and barack obama will be trying to reach a shrinking pool of undecided voters. joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla. the challenges for both. everyone trying to lower expectations but the fact is, that both of these -- both of these debaters are experienced, they both had primary debates but there is a challenge first for mitt romney, he's never gone head-to-head against barack obama and for the president, he has not debated in a while. he didn't have any -- of course didn't have any primary challenges this year. >> right. andrea, i always think it's hilarious, last night in las vegas barack obama said i'm an okay debater. it's like when lou holtz was the coach of notre dame and playing east/west texas state, i don't know, they're pretty strong this year. you have to put it in some context. both of these people as you point out have risen to a point where they are the nominees for president for the parties. neither are bad debaters. they are both able and capable. you're right. look, barack obama hasn't debat

response showed a tremendous lack of presidential character. >> michelle is a former obama administration top aide, currently advising obama's re-election campaign on national security issues, served three years as undersecretary of defense for policy. michelle, good to see you. the new ad that is out now, you know, everybody has on the job training here. we know that president obama, when he first came into office didn't have a lot of foreign policy experiences. can you cut mitt romney some slack on that first visit, or do you think that really indicates a lack of understand ogt world stage? >> well, his initial performance abroad certainly did not inspire confidence. the truth is beyond that he hasn't been able to articulate a clear vision as to where he would take this country. he talks a lot about criticizing the president, criticizing his policies, but when you actually look at what he says, there's -- he seems to either embrace the president's plan or where he differentiates himself, really goes way, way from the mainstream and takes us into some pretty uncertain territory. i think
's going on righ now. the world,of urse, watching and anticipating the stage for the first presidential debate. the university of denver in colorado. now, this is where for 9 on minutes president obama, former massachusetts governor mitt romney will go at it tonight head-to-head, face-to-face, and while they're on the stage, whole lot will be happening behind the scenes. want to bring in cnn political director mark preston who gives us a look. >> heetsz head inside where the action is going to take place. >> she must be wonder whoing will be sitting in the audience tonight for this first presidential debate. i don't know the answer, but peter here with the commissioner on presidential debates does. >> on wednesday night at the university of denver we'll have students, vip's, and those that the campaigns have invited. they'll be on floort and on the balcony behind us. >> how do you get invited if you don't get an invitation from one of the candidates? >> it would be very difficult to get into the debate. >> who is going to be at that far podium? >> at the far podium will be governor romn
presidential debate. if romney won the instant reactions from last night's debates, it's more than possible that the obama camp can win the next 24 hours. also tomorrow the labor department releases its monthly jobs report potentially, giving team obama a chance to change the narrative. let me bring in political editor -- senior political edit editor, mark murray. patrick gaspar was here a moment ago. he had the same strategy you pointed out earlier this morning. they're looking at the long picture or big picture here, and not focusing too much on the one debate. >> that's right. they tried to turn the message. they had an aggressive conference call today. you saw a fiery president obama campaigning in denver trying to point out what they said were misstatements that mitt romney made at the debate last night. so that's what they are actually trying to do. i will say as we wrote in first read, there is that kind of 24-hour period on how the campaigns can try to shake things. just seeing the body language, seeing a lot of the commentary, the obama campaign is still struggling. diana on andrea
